How often do you think users need to downgrade past that?But not the kernel headers, or indeed any other package.
I was under the impression that they were kept until the kernel they applied to was removed. And, as I understand it, the headers for each kernel are kept in a separate directory named after the version. If they're not kept (and my understanding of their location is correct) then you should be able to get them back if needed, without downgrading the kernel.
